You know you can store your keys in that thing?

Many pickup trucks come pre-equipped with a hitch receiver, ready and rarin’ to tow your favorite trailer. But let’s be honest, most of the time you’re not towing anything, and it just sits there empty, doing nothing. Now, with dozens of accessories available (not including, ahem, trucksticles), your hitch can help you out even when not dragging the boat. Between storage and lighting and a hidden vault, everyone can find a second use for that little steel square.

This bed extender hitch from Ecotric is made of steel and fits into 2-inch square hitch receivers. It has a weight capacity of 750 pounds for extra long cargo that won’t fit in your standard bed.

This step from APS fits into your hitch receiver to allow you easy access to your truck bed. It features non-slip ridges and the large center hole and works with all straps.

This 18-watt, 1,800-lumen hitch light emits a 60-degree wide flood light and a narrower, 30-degree spotlight. Its universal fit works on everything.

This mini vault from HitchSafe secures your valuables in the hitch of your truck with a combination lock so you don’t have to carry keys out in the wild. No tools are necessary for installation.

This bike rack from Leader Accessories fits on a 2-inch hitch receiver and features a quick release tilting design for loading and unloading. It transports most bikes including Fat Tires and electrics.

This light-up hitch cover features the Chevy logo and comes with mounting brackets for your receiver. The four-pin harness provides the power.

This hitch cargo holder can carry up to 500 pounds and measures 60 x 24 inches. Its black powder coat resists corrosion, and the mesh floor makes it easy to clean.
